Robert Vadra gets bail in money laundering case

New Delhi: A court here on Monday granted bail to Robert Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, in a money laundering case.

The Enforcement Directorate, which questioned Vadra several time, had opposed the bail saying his custodial interrogation was necessary for the probe.

Special Judge Arvind Kumar allowed Vadra’s anticipatory bail in the case related to his ownership of overseas assets worth 1.9 million pounds to evade tax.

The court also allowed anticipatory bail for his aide Manoj Arora.

The court asked them to furnish a personal bond of Rs 5 lakh each and one surety of a similar amount each.

They have been ordered not to leave the country without permission and join the probe whenever required.

The court also ordered the accused not to tamper with the probe or try to influence witnesses in the case.
